Living in unprecedented and historic days demands we think at a higher level of understanding than when we are not living in these types of days. If we try to apply the same logic to every situation, season and era we are in, we will miss what is happening in our current reality. Not only did a pandemic come upon us suddenly and usher in days like we have never known before in our generation, but prior to that, a President was elected who was not typical of what we had been accustomed to in our generation. These markers are key indicators of unprecedented days in which we are living.
Many people have done prolific digs to understand the days in which we live. Many more people will speak into these days as more truth is uncovered and more understanding is given to us. These days can feel turbulent, troubling, exciting, adventurous, and so many other adjectives but the truth is, life on earth is changing forever by the design of God Himself. Therefore, we have people who are praying ground level, taking out enemies and entities in the earth realm with their prayers, prophetic acts and legal renderings.
What we are seeing is people finding and binding the enemy in every area of society. This is unprecedented in our generation, because we are watching, participating and engaging in this in real time. We are going to see and hear of things being exposed that we might not believe unless we saw it or heard it ourselves. Brace yourself, for this is going to shake many people internally, for most of us had no clue what was happening behind the scenes.
This exposure has opened up the ability to find and bind multiple levels of demonic influence in and over the nations. The news, social media and other platforms are revealing things we did not know, but know now. However, God is also revealing high level principalities that have been ruling over the earth realm, in order for us to find them and bind them, so they can no longer control us any longer. If we only find and bind earth level people, and not also heavenly level principalities and powers (Ephesians 6) we will rid the earth of those who carry the spirit of the air now, but new foot soldiers for the spirit of the air will arise again.
The Lord has equipped the Ekklessia (Matthew 16:18) to find and bind the spirits in the air that are controlling the people on the ground. While in prayer this morning, I asked the Lord to reveal to me what spirit is ruling the nations, for without that spirit being removed, we will bring to justice people on earth, but we need the Lord to bring to justice the enemies in the air. What the Lord showed me is that the ruling spirit of the air is a spirit of violence according to Psalm 17:4 which speaks of the ways of the violent. That word violent in the Hebrew means, violent one, robbers, vicious, tyrant, destroyer, ravenous, murderer. The spirit of violence is the ruling principality over the nations and the Lord is going to use His sword (Psalm 17:13) to cut the head off this spirit.
The other day the Lord spoke to me and said, “The thief has been caught” (Proverbs 6:30-31). When the Lord showed me this spirit of violence is a robber, I knew this was the spirit the Lord wanted us to find and bind. This morning the Lord sent me to Mark 3:20-27, where Jesus is discussing how Satan can’t cast out Satan and how no one can enter the strong man’s house, unless he first binds the strong man. The Lord needed us to find this strong man named Violence, so we could ask the Lord to bind him, for once he is bound, Mark 3:27 says, then He can plunder his house.
The Lord has found and bound the strong man called the spirit of violence which was a ruling spirit over the nations. It is a tyrannical spirit, and this spirit needed to be bound in order for us to not live under that spirit of control any longer. This high-level spirit filters down to our every day lives, for this spirit grips people and causes them to do what he does on a micro level. It is no wonder Jesus told us in Matthew 20:25-26 “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them and their superiors exercise authority over them. It shall not be this way among you.” And Peter says it this way in 1 Peter 5:2-3 “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is among you, watching over them not out of compulsion, but because it is God’s will; not out of greed, but out of eagerness; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.”
The reason life as we know it is not going to be the same is because the spirit of violence is being dealt with in the air and everywhere. Those who want to lord over others will be removed from positions of leadership, whether in the church or in the nations. The Lord is cleaning out both the earth and the church with His sword (Hebrews 4:12). Jesus Christ alone is the head of everything, Colossians 2:10 says, “In Him you have been made complete, and He is head over all rule and authority.” Jesus Christ is not a tyrannical ruler; He is a liberator of us all. He freed us from our transgressions, from the certificate of debt, from the decrees against us, from all adversaries (Colossians 2:11-15). He nailed it all to the cross for our freedom. Remember, it is for freedom we have been set free (Galatians 5:11).
The spirit of violence is a tyrannical spirit that seeks to control and has been operating in every level of life, but that spirit has been found and is bound. Now the Lord is releasing a spirit of love which is a liberating spirit that seeks to free you not dominate you. Oh, that we would all surrender to the spirit of love, which is a spirit of liberty, so we can live. The thief has been caught and now he must pay seven times, even if it costs him his whole house (Proverbs 6:31). To God be the glory, great things He has done!
